- Length: 4 hrs and 13 mins
The Beatrix Potter Collection is perfect for introducing a new generation to the magic of her adored classic stories.

Beautiful and Nostalgic
- By Colin McIntosh on 20-08-19
The stories are generally well read. Andrew Scott is actually better at the female characters.
But why all the extras? My daughter listens to this at night and we have to skip the first two chapters to get to the stories. And then the end has an interview with Andrew Scott about the books? Why would my four year old be interested in that? So we have to make sure to end the book before the end.
The content of the interview may even be unsuitable for children. I don't know: I haven't listened to it myself yet.
Sometimes I find bonus interviews interesting but they shouldn't be in children's books. An otherwise very good book has been ruined and I'm beyond disappointed!
